The Aeroscience Studies class at Coppell High School is an elective that members of the School of Engineering are able to enroll in. Aeroscience Studies is a two year course, starting their junior year, and continuing through their senior year. The seniors that are graduating in 2012 are currently working on a high altitude rocket project, and they need help funding their project.
They are designing, building, and launching a rocket to reach an altitude of 100,000 ft. The launch itself will be held at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. This is a very large accomplishment for a group of high school students. The magnitude of the launch itself is extremely massive. They will be closing up the nearest highways and evacuating a 20 mile radius of the launch site. These precautions are necessary because the rocket is estimated to be 25 feet in length with a 6 foot nosecone.
The Aeroscience Studies class is in need of donations to complete this prestigious project. Materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, carbon fiber, graphite, tracking devices, and services (CNC Machining) would also be appreciated.
